That's the way to do it.  A happy wife means a happier life.  I hope you enjoyed a few of those DVD's.  How much more writing do you have to go before you're able to publish something?


As for me I started the outline for Admiral 14, still can't totally decide on the name, and when I put down a few chapters and then got stalled out I decided to stop and just write out a coupel of those chapters.  I wrote one or two and it inspired more ideas and now I've got 8 or more chapters half plotted half written out for the next book.  now I just need to figure out the last two thirds of the book.

Ending can be a bitch somethings.

I'm probably less then 4k-5k from finishing first pass. It's slow going. Part of it is, I keep screwing up as I try to craft the ending the way I want it. Though I'd prefer to wait and fix it in the second pass it begins to get so tangled up that even my notes on what needs fixing stop making sense. Too many meds. I did discover a couple of the drugs they have me on lynch B12 out of me. I've started taking supplements. It seems to be helping me get out of the fog a little. I just don't want to take a whole lot right off the bat so I'm trying to work up to what I hope will be a good level.

The link maker on Kboards created bigger pictures than your previous links did but since I was able to get the whole series in I just couldn't resist.

I'll try to get to the author spot light.

Amazon sets the size of the image using the last few digits in the name relative to the image hieght. In this case Sl160 which sets the height at 160 pixels  You can set the height to any number you want and their site will generate it while maintaining the correct aspect ratio.
Image name at Amazon being used is 51QaL82a1zL._SL160_.jpg. The 160 specifying image height in pixels. Change the SL number and the image size changes.

Did get several paragraphs written last night, mostly dialog of the bad guys strategizing on how to kill the good guys. The hero's ship has a cloaking device but of course no cloak is perfect.  While cloaked their speed is limited. If they uncloak the attack drones can quickly run them down. Out numbered and out gunned three to one the ranger ship is in a bit of a pickle. Is there a way out? Can they escape? At this point only the author knows. Of course most readers are pretty sure the heroes survive though they may get banked up a bit.

22k - Admiral 14 and still up in the air on the name ideas.  Admiral's Endgame, Admiral and King, Admiral Monarch, Admiral and Monarch?

Anyway yeah but I'll figure it out.  Also it sounds like you're closing in on the end of your story.  I hope you're able to finish it up and polish it off in time to publish it at some point, SP.

I should be able to finish it soon. I got the font size jacked up and using the magnifier windows provides, which helps to see the screen better. The biggest problem is still being able to hold the story in my head so I know what direction the scenes are supposed to go. Not being able to hold all the names and places in my head means I have to keep looking it up anew every day. I used to be able hold a dozen different things in my head at a time but with the constant pain and drugs It takes every effort to focus on just what's in front of me.

Got a little more writing done today. I do feel I'm making a little progress since a little tension is starting to build. We'll see how it goes from here. We've had thunder storms nearly everyday this week. Pain in the ass. Despite having circuit protectors, we still turn every thing off when they roll through, just to be safe. Had one hit in the field in back night before last. Lot's of fun.

I'm glad your electronics were not fried by the lightning blast!
